Clay Shirky: How cellphones, Twitter, Facebook can make history

Clay Shirky's analysis of how new media, like Twitter, Face Book, etc. makes audiences increasingly  participatory and not just passive consumers of messages and ideas is important for understanding the impact of Web 2.0 and its heirs. Clay's TED Talk is now three years old yet its relevance and foresight is impressive.

Narrative Analysis in Media Studies by Davesgud

With thanks to Davesgud for passing me the link for to his excellent, short You Tube Video on Narrative Analyis. I think A2 students will find it useful for analysing their own coursework and other film texts for narrative.

I am not teaching Media Studies this year. But I will add useful videos and other helpful materials whenever colleagues ask me to do so.
